On the night of Jumaada Al-Awwal 13, 1435 AH(March 14, 2014) I spoke as an invited guest speaker and facilitator of a vision board workshop to the beloved sisters of Masjid At-Taqwa in Brooklyn, NY. Alhamdulilah! Allah’s house was filled with richness, courage, talent, dreams, hope, love, ambition and most of all LOVE!!! Yes!!! LOVE that was indescribable and could only exist among Allah’s beautiful servants who all are connected by ONE common belief and message that La illaha il Allah wa Muhammadar Rasool Allah-sallalahu alayhi wa salam!
Sisters were engaging and embracing and it reminded me of the days when the sisters in the community would run to help a sister in need whether it be food, clothes, babysitting, cooking, transportation etc… or whether they would get together for activities like retreats, family barbecues, and other fun-filled trips! We were all just happy to be among one another! It was a beautiful night of halal fun and sisterhood love!!! WE NEED THE SISTERHOOD BACK YA UMMATI!!!
During the vision board workshop many of the sisters could not stop expressing how they enjoyed making vision boards and how they felt that they were now seeing their visions with clarity and wanting so much more in their life. We had a room full of sisters who had dreams to become doctors, acupuncturists, hair stylists, shaykas, teachers, ultrasound techs, surgeons etc. It was truly a “Room Full Of Vision”! The youth rocked the house with their vision boards and were giving motivation and inspiration to the rest of us!!! WE HAD A BLAST!!! May Allah continue to guide us all to unleash the beautiful talents that He has created us with and may they be of benefit in this life and of the next-AMEEN!!!
This tour that I was planning to do really is not turning out how I planned and that is because Allah had a better plan and the BEST PLAN for me!!! Allah is truly Akbar! Look out for more as I travel visiting different communities , I may end up at a masjid or location in your neck of the woods!!!! I will be posting pics soon in shaa Allah!!! May Allah continue to guide me and help me to keep my intentions pure as I do what I love to do for the women of this ummah-Ameen!!! ~Herspiring Bizness on a mission to Inspire and Motivate!!! PASSION IS REAL!!!
